Books we’ll be featuring:

An Englishman in Texas by Ron Kenney
A memoir about an English jockey who came to Texas in 1960. Author Ron Kenney tells about childhood during the Battle of Britain in northern England, his apprenticeship as a jockey from the age of 14, until he retired from that life after an injury in his 30s. He tells about the rich men he rode for and about his life after horses. This man is a dynamo, and we hope he will be able to join us at NTBF.

Gunshot, Peacock, Dog by Rick Campbell
Poetry by one of Florida’s best loved poets. Rick Campbell’s poetry reads like a conversation with a good friend. He brings light and thoughtful humor to mundane day-to-day existence.

No Evil is Wide by Randall Watson
Dark, literary fiction by award-winning poet and author. Randall Watson’s gift for poetic language shines through this dark story of a chaotic near future where the world has slipped into madness.

Sisypha Larvata Prodeat by Jan Cole
Multi-lingual, illustrated poetry by beloved Texas poet/musician. Jan Cole’s poetry about love, life, and friendship translated by Angela Liu and Lorrie Lo is a joy in any language. It is enhanced by the colorful and playful artwork of Mexican artist, Adelina Moya.

The Autobiography of Francis N. Stein: The Last Promethean by A. Rooney
A novel that explores what may have happened if the Frankenstein wretch had descendants. Francis is a big hearted guy who can’t seem to avoid trouble.

By the Light of a Neon Moon edited by Janet Lowery
A wild and crazy poetry anthology about dancehalls. This collection includes the work of numerous poets laureate and award winning poets from around the country.

Other Words Literary Conference in Tampa 2018

Other Words Literary Conference logo

Madville’s First Official Conference

The Other Words Conference was held at the University of Tampa, October 11-13, 2018, which turned out to be unfortunate as Hurricane Michael blew through the Florida Panhandle on October 10. This meant many writers who had planned to attend simply couldn’t get there. Still, Tampa was unaffected, and the airplanes flew, so Kim and Jacqui attended and represented Madville.


These events are largely about networking, and we sat prominently with a table at the book fair, where we offered our first two titles, An Englishman in Texas and Gunshot, Peacock, Dog. Rick Campbell, author of Gunshot, Peacock, Dog, was on hand to sign copies. In addition, Kim spoke on the subject of publishing.
